Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 9

Letter to the Rt Hon Dr John Reid MP from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

Following a telephone call from your office on Tuesday 4 April I am writing to confirm the arrangements that were made for us to have a meeting at 5.30 pm on Wednesday 19 April 2000 in my office in 7 Millbank. Please come to room 418, on the 4th floor.

The purpose of the meeting is for me to clarify the details of your response to the complaint which I have been investigating. For the sake of completeness I felt I should add that when we do meet I shall be requesting you to allow the meeting to be tape recorded so that I have a precise record of what you wish to say to me. As usual I will of course provide you with a copy of the transcript so that you may correct it before I make use of it. I shall be accompanied by a colleague who will also take a note. You are of course welcome to be accompanied if you wish it. I hope you will be happy with these arrangements but if you would like to talk through any of these matters again, please do not hesitate to contact me
